Is where you are working getting you down? Would you want to work in an area of outstanding natural beauty with easy access to places like Skye and Plockton – while still within an hour of Inverness - and with a great work-life balance? 

Owing to the relocation of a current GP Partner, we are looking for a replacement GP to join our small and very friendly Practice Team in early September 2019. We provide traditional holistic family medicine to the people of Lochcarron and surrounding countryside – an area of outstanding natural beauty.
